Development of Indian livestock has become eye-catching and more competitive over the last few years. Except meat and eggs, India has meagre share even less than one per cent in world livestock export basket. India is dominated in the bovine meat export in world market and its share has increased over the period. The results of Nominal Protection Coefficient (NPC) confirmed that several Indian livestock products were export competitive except butter and condensed milk. India has comparative advantage in both bovine meat and eggs but Revealed Comparative Advantage (RCA) in egg decreased after 2009.
